Restraint and Freezing Orders

Proceeds of Crime Act 2000

These orders are imposed even before you are charged with any offence.
The orders will have been obtained ex parte which means without the Defence being present. These are draconian orders that the investigating authorities can impose on your assets, which effectively freezes them and stops you from operating bank accounts and your business. Furthermore the authorities will limit your monthly spend. The day-to-day impact these orders have on individuals and families are devastating.

It is vital that immediate steps are taken on the Order and supporting evidence as often the Judge has been presented with facts that may not be entirely accurate.
Challenging these facts will ensure that the Judge has applied the correct test in law when looking at this order.


FACT lawyers understand the importance of acting immediately for individuals where their banking has been halted and they cannot meet their daily expenses and are in a desperate and frightening position.
Once instructed we will offer an immediate appointment and in the first 48 hours ensure that we analyse the order, take detailed instructions and have made contact with the Prosecution and Court. They will take practical steps to get you back on your feet and proactively advance your case.


Our dedicated team of lawyers will provide you with 24hour phone and email contact as well as evening and weekend appointments to advise and support you through what we know is an extremely worrying and frightening experience.

“Raz Mann is the sort of solicitor that I, as a Barrister who specialises in heavyweight crime want on my team. He is nationally acknowledged as one of the top criminal solicitors, his extensive following is a testament to that assertion. He brings a sound tactical awareness of how to advance his clients case from the police station onwards and throughout the trial process. He is particularly astute in recognising and addressing at an early stage the most advantageous way to bring about the required result in his cases. In short he delivers. That’s why he is the go to Mann!"

Baz Bhatia QC

“I am a criminal barrister with over 20 years experience. My instructions consist exclusively of serious fraud, money laundering and other complex criminal conspiracies. I only work with a handful of solicitors, those that are themselves experienced in the defence of such serious and complex cases. One such solicitor is Raz Mann, he and I have worked closely on a number of grave criminal matters over a period of years. In my view, his preparation is meticulous and his advice first rate. My job is made that much easier given the superb way in which the case has already been conducted prior to my instruction. Raz has a rare intellect coupled with fine judgement and an insatiable appetite for work. It is obvious to all who observe him that he displays a steely determination to get the job done! In short, if someone is unlucky enough to be charged with a crime they should seek to tip the scales in their favour by instructing Raz from the outset.

Imran Shafi QC

Raz Mann excels when dealing with the most complex and serious cases. He is sought out nationally by clients as a consequence of his ability to fight for the client and going the extra mile in his cases. His tactical awareness and tenacity make him an excellent litigator.
